Whole Foods co-founder plans veg restaurants, wellness centers after Amazon exit

John Mackey, Whole Foods Market co-founder knows what he wants to do after he retires from the Amazon-owned grocer.

He is building a chain of plant-based restaurants and wellness centers that offer fitness services.

He is listed as a partner in Healthy America.

Healthy America is a startup that raised about $31 million from investors.

Their aim is to launch a national network of medical wellness centers and vegetarian restaurants.

This will be in parallel to bringing culinary, healthcare and wellness under one roof.

The chain’s first location, bearing the brand 'Love Life’ is reported to open in southern California.
